Kevin "K.C." Crosby


Tight end Kevin Crosby Jr. of Bamberg-Ehrhardt, who nearly made a commitment last summer, will have a decision by early June his father and coach Butch Crosby said Wednesday night.

"It will come after he visits some camps," Crosby said. "He won't be working in any camps."

Clemson and USC will be two of the camp visits.

It was thought last summer Crosby was on the verge of committing to USC. His father said a decision was nearly made but he can't say to whom.

"He had an idea where he wanted to go," he said. "His momma wanted him to wait a little while. She thought it was a little early. Coaches change, things change, and she didn't like the idea of decommitting from a school."

Crosby Jr's. last visit was to Alabama for a junior day. He did not make it to USC or Clemson's first junior day but is going to Clemson for the next one March 9th. He will also go to Florida in March and to North Carolina at some point. New Tar Heel assistant coach Ron West talked with the Crosbys Wednesday night.

Right now Crosby Jr. has a top five of USC, Clemson, Alabama, Florida and North Carolina.

"He's wide open," among those five his father said. "Everybody's got a chance."

Crosby Jr. picked up his 47th offer Wednesday from Kansas State.
